Here some restaurants or stores will have a pet like dog or cat. Do you think that it will attract more customers? As a person who likes dogs and cats, of course I will pay attention to it. I like to touch them if possible This cat is from a market and his name is Ball Ball

If the store has big dogs like St. Bernard, I'll definitely enter that place.

I am surprised to hear that you are not afraid of big dogs

I think in your culture. It is a good way to have a cat waving its hand in front of the door. It attracts the people to come in. Image Credit:

@youless I didn't know that. Most Chinese people in my country use this. It is nice to know then.

@Shavkat I think Japanese is a race that likes cats. Since we like having fortune, and we like the idea that cats bring the fortune from Japan.

I guess it depends a lot on the animal and the people. In a restaurant some people might be worried about germs particularly if a cat is allowed to jump on the tables.

Perhaps it is better for the pets to stay in the stores rather than in the restaurants.

@youless They tried to introduce pets into the nursing home but bome were allergic to dogs and/or cats and some were afraid of dogs so it didn't really work.

Dogs or cats are not allowed to stay inside a store or a restaurant in Germany due to hygiene reason. They should wait outside.

You are right. But as a cat lover, I just ignore it

@youless yes you can ignore it but in Germany, it is the rule or law of the shops owners.

It depends. If the stores are made for customers to enjoy their pets which is also rampant now.... I think it is cool. But if not... I don't think the customer will like that, first the sanitation... If the pets wasn't clean and they have bugs on their purr... I don't think it is cool. To buy something that might have been infected by those bugs.

You are right. Here usually the pets indoor are clean and healthy. My friend told me that there is a coffee shop here which there are some expensive cats inside.
